Fence Books

Fence has a mission to redefine the terms of accessibility by publishing challenging writing distinguished by idiosyncrasy and intelligence rather than by allegiance with camps, schools, or cliques. It is also Fence‘s mission to encourage writing that might otherwise have difficulty being recognized because it doesn’t answer to either the mainstream or to recognizable modes of experimentation.

Further, Fiddleblack is a participant in whatever collective effort modern literary culture has in encouraging and developing independent literature and its philosophical inquiries into self and place.
